Imagine there is a series of three bullish candlestick patterns in a row. It shows a strong uptrend and a bullish scenario. In the fourth candle, price opens within the body of its previous bearish candle and closes below the closing price of first bearish candle in the series of three bearish candles. It turns out to be a strong bearish candle that gives up on all the gains of three candles in a single session. This formation is known as a Bearish Three Line Strike pattern.

It is a strong bearish trend reversal pattern. The bears gain the tremendous strength in a single session and the bulls are in shock. As the name suggests, it’s a solid strike by bears.
